This Appalachian Trail hike treks from Woody Gap to Ramrock Mountain, Gooch Gap and the Gooch Mountain AT shelter. It’s a popular day hike on the AT for its stunning summit views and easy accessibility. The trail grabs views from Woody Gap before the hike even begins. The trail also offers excellent views at Ramrock Mountain and treks through an old growth forest near Gooch Gap before reaching the Gooch Mountain shelter at 5.2 miles. We will have lunch at the Gooch Mountain Shelter before returning back to our cars the way we came. Total elevation gain is approximately 2000 feet. The pace will be moderate with a few stops at the scenic overlooks.
|How to Get There:|
North on GA 400 from the park and ride. When GA 400 ends at the Chevron station make a left onto US-19/GA60 until you reach Dahlonega. From Dahlonega, take GA 60 north for 15 miles until you reach the parking lot on the top of the mountain at Woody Gap.
